Lyme Academy College Students Host Holiday Art Sale

Opening Reception to be held Friday, Dec. 3.

Oil on Canvas by Richard Lacey, Class of 2011

Students attending Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts have been busy organizing and publicizing their 2010 Holiday Art Show, which opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, December 3, 2010, in the Sill House Gallery. The public is invited to attend the reception, which will also include music and refreshments.

The show will comprise a selection of original works in mixed media by emerging artists. The exceptional quality of the artwork reflects the high quality of teaching at the College by faculty who, in addition to their teaching roles, are all working artists. Both students and faculty have been recognized for their accomplishments.

A special feature at the Opening Reception this year is the opportunity for guests to have their portraits sketched by a student for a donation towards the student’s spring enrichment experience.

Always a popular exhibition, this show provides a perfect opportunity to jump-start the holiday gift shopping season. All the artwork is attractively priced and sold on a cash and carry basis. All proceeds from the show benefit the students directly.

The show runs through Saturday, December 11, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
